Close Brothers (Cayman) Limited recently signed on as a Silver Sponsor of the upcoming Junior Achievement programme year.
Managing Director Linburgh Martin presented Junior Achievement’s Director Ravi Kapoor with a cheque for US$3,000, representing the firm’s sponsorship commitment.
‘Close Brothers (Cayman) Limited is committed to the development of young people and we are pleased that our donation will be used to assist Junior Achievement in their 18-week Company Programme and its Economics for Success curriculum,’ Mr. Martin said in a press release.
‘Our country’s success is dependent on our youth, and as such we feel it’s our corporate responsibility to see that our young people are taught the appropriate skills to cultivate our leaders for tomorrow. Programmes such as Junior Achievement provide a positive foundation for our young people by providing them with a sampling of the business world.’
Members of the board of directors extended their appreciation to Close Brothers for their financial support, which will assist JA in developing high school students into budding entrepreneurs and future managers and employees for local business.
Junior Achievement is the oldest, largest and fastest growing business and economic not-for-profit education organisation in the world. Internationally the programme is growing, and through local corporate sponsorship JA Cayman Islands continues to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
